Belles Hot Chicken at Wulugul Pop Up, Barangaroo

Fried chicken fans rejoice. Belles Hot Chicken has landed in Sydney. This Melbourne favourite has finally opened a Sydney offshoot, opening up in the Wulugul Pop-Up at Barangaroo. Although the Wulugul Pop-Up doesn't officially open until...Show More Summary

Pilu at Freshwater

There's no street number for Pilu at Freshwater. "On the beach" are the only directions you'll get beyond "Moore Road" on their website. It means we have no choice but to walk hopefuly toward the ocean, nodding at the passing surfies...Show More Summary

Via Napoli Pizzeria, Surry Hills

The savoury equivalent of birthday cake has to be pizza, right? Think about it. There's the ceremony of cutting, the sharing around of slices, and then the unstoppable grin that spreads from cheek to cheek. It's communal eating at its...Show More Summary

257 Home Kitchen, Eastwood

This is the first time we’ve heard of a Chinese restaurant enforcing two sittings at dinner time. We’re kinda glad they do because otherwise you’d never score a table - even with a booking. Locals have jammed this Eastwood newcomer,Show More Summary

Fine Italian Bakery Voglia Di Pane, Woodpark

Remember the old skool bakery? We're talking giant vanilla slices, sugar-crusted long john donuts and fruit tarts glazed with apricot jam. Fine Italian Bakery (Voglia Di Pane) goes one better, churning out all of the above plus a bonanza...Show More Summary

Homemade jams and preserved fruits? Who knew it could be so easy? There's an impressive sense of energy and enthusiasm that radiates from Cornersmith co-owner Alex Elliot-Howery. Her eyes positively sparkle as she explains what to do,...Show More Summary

Master Chinese restaurant, Surry Hills

Puffed beef tendons are the new pork crackling. Seriously. Light and airy with a satisfying crunch, there's just a hint of sticky richness that comes through at the end of each one. At Master in Surry Hills, they toss them with haidai, or kombu salt, providing an umami kick of seaweed. Show More Summary

Culinary Carnivale, Fairfield 2015

First it was the smell of charcoal. Then it was the heart-stopping sound of drumming. There was no doubt we'd found Culinary Carnivale, the annual Fairfield festival celebrating Spanish and Latin American cuisine. We stopped by lastShow More Summary

The Two Wolves Community Cantina, Chippendale

Jang Tur Charcoal BBQ Restaurant, Canterbury

First let’s talk about the egg soup. All the regulars rave about it. There’s a good reason. The gyeranjjim looks ominous at first, a bubbling mass of pale yellow that arrives in a ttukbaegi, a traditional Korean earthenware bowl. This Korean favourite is made by steaming eggs with seasoned stock so the egg puffs up like a mattress. Show More Summary

Feral Party by Pinbone at Young Henrys - Good Food Month 2015

Sourdough to the head really hurts. It was a lesson learnt in my first ever food fight on the weekend. We've all seen scenes from movies of food fights in American cafeterias, but nothing quite prepares you for the brain-rattling thwack...Show More Summary

Automata, Chippendale

Has there been a more anticipated opening than Automata this year? Clayton Well's first solo venture already had the attention of fellow chefs and food media as soon as it was announced. Originally slated to open in March this year, its delay only increased the sense of hype, pressure and expectation. Show More Summary

Chum Tang, Chatswood

Let's make one thing clear. Chum Tang doesn't compromise on heat. The sister restaurant to Khao Pla - located only a few blocks away - Chum Tang is one of the hottest restaurants to take up residence in the new District at Chatswood Interchange, no pun intended. Show More Summary

O Se Yo, Lidcombe

That massive pot of simmering soup you see people eating at Korean restaurants? Meet jeongol, said to have once been the preserve of the rich or the royal. You can put anything in here: meat, seafood, tofu, vegetables, dumplings and even whole cakes of instant noodles. Show More Summary

Otaru: Squid ink ice cream, eight layer soft serves and the Nikka Whisky distillery in Yoichi

Giant eight-layer soft serve? That got your attention! But there's more to Otaru than wacky ice creams. This picturesque port city is a popular getaway for locals and tourists. It also makes for a handy base to explore Yoichi, the birthplace of Nikka Whisky Distillery. Show More Summary

Sokyo Ramen Pop-Up by Chase Kojima at The Star, Pyrmont

It's official. Ramen fever has struck Sydney hard. On a Saturday night at The Star, on only its third day of trade, the Sokyo Ramen pop-up is enveloped by a snaking queue. At the helm is Chase Kojima, who has been tantalising his Instagram followers for several months now with his ramen research efforts. Show More Summary

New Star Kebabs, Auburn

We’ve all been there. A late-night kebab loaded with meat and dripping with chilli sauce after a beer or three is a rite of passage. And even though New Star Kebabs is open late enough to help you kick that impending hangover to theShow More Summary

Sapporo Ramen Alley, Hokkaido king crab and Kinotoya Bake cheese tarts

Fat sweet scallops. Giant king crabs. Buttery sea urchin. If these words commanded your attention, you need to make your way to Hokkaido as soon as you can. This island oasis of crisp clean air and spectacular scenery is what I likeShow More Summary

Kin Senn Thai Street Food, Haymarket, Sydney

Thai cakes. We're talking flavours of Thai tea, young coconut, egg yolk and pandan slathered with cream. If you ever walked along Campbell Street in Sydney's Thai Town, you would have seen Ma Toom's cream-laden cakes out the front of a particular grocery store, beckoning you closer with its tortes and rainbow crepe cakes.
